“If you wouldn’t accept it yourself, don’t expect the customer to.”

We like our customers to feel welcome and help out wherever possible, even if it’s just offering information to help them out. As a company we usually do “Job Lot” Orders. This means everything is custom run to customer’s specifications. We always try to work within customer’s time frame.

Years in
Business

Timberwest came about from a company that used to make solid timber cabinet doors. We used to get asked to run mouldings, make panels, benchtops and also to supply dressed timber.

We realised that there was a market for this type of business to supply cabinet makers, shopfitters and the handyman, so we decided to set up timberwest as a separate entity.

The company started in 1996. There was originally three partners but over the next 2 or 3 years I became the owner with my wife. We as a company try to have a happy and enjoyable workplace.

One of my favourite things is being able to make custom items for customers, which at times can be very challenging. But it’s great to see their face when they see you’ve delivered exactly what they were looking for. I enjoy making unique things from wood, seeing a finished piece of work that was once just a simple slab of timber is my favourite thing about woodwork.

My two favourite types of wood are:

1. Marri, which is a very busy timber with lots of gum vein and gum pockets in.

2. American oak, which has a very prolific grain that looks great when polished.

The challenge of making something from a raw natural product and turning it into someone’s pride and joy is my favourite thing about woodwork. My favourite things to make are kitchen bench tops and stair treads. Combining different bit of timber to produce something unique that will become part of someone’s everyday use is a great part of my job.

My favourite timbers to work with are both native timbers to Australia and W.A:

1. Jarrah is a hardwood that is very easy to work with and has a nice warm feel to it with the red coloring.

2. Spotted Gum is also a hardwood that has varying colours from a black to greenish tinge. It also has a curly sort of feature that looks spectacular when joined together with a number of other pieces.
